It's only week two of Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins' season of The Bachelor but already we have some firm frontrunners: from youth worker Brooke Blurton, who Nick gave the key to the Bachie pad, to Sophie Tieman, who's been a rumoured frontrunner since the start. But after episode three, no one stands out more than 30-year-old Brittany Hockley.
The radiographer who was born in Port Macquarie - coincidentally, the same place (and hospital) as the Honey Badger - scored the first (consensual) kiss of the season after going on a single date with Nick. Now, many are thinking the stunning brunette scores the final rose of the season, after a few hints by both herself and the bachie.
Here, we count down the reasons we think Britt wins The Bachelor 2018.
1. Nick hinted that he ends up with a brunette
When the Honey Badger talked to Fitzy and Wippam, he said that all of his ex-girlfriends have been blonde and that this time, he's had a big changer - AKA ended up with a brunette.
"In the past, they have actually been sandy blonde… and that's why I've had a big changer," Nick said.
2. Brittany's recent activity on social media
When a friend commented on Brittany's Instagram, saying, "Britt we are all enjoying the journey but just tell us what we really want…. Am [I] going heavy on Sportsbet or not???" The bachelorette coyly responded by liking the comment, prompting fans to think she's giving her friend the go-ahead to place some serious bets.
Plus, while all the women post about the show on their personal Instagrams, Britt's posts have been especially loved-up. "The perfect end to the most perfect day... 🌹" she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her and Nick kissing in the pool. She even tagged his personal account.
3. She's already the favourite to win on Sportsbet
Despite Brooke getting more screen time with Nick, Brittany is the one people are (literally) betting on to win. Britt comes in at $1.82 on Sportsbet, followed by 25-year-old Sophie at $3.50 and 23-year-old Brooke at $4.50.
4. She spends a lot of one-on-one time with Nick
Look back at an early promo for the show and you'll see a lot of Brittany. She's pictured flirting with a Nick while he's shirtless, going on a lighthouse date with him (all signs point to a second one-on-one date), feeding a crocodile with him (classic Bachie date material) and wearing a green dress at a cocktail party, while staring at her (maybe) man.
5. She's the type of girl Nick is into
Nick was visibly chuffed when Brittany revealed she's been travelling for the past few years - like he has - and loves to see the world. He's listed numerous times that a sense of adventure and someone who loves activities are qualities his perfect girl possesses, and after Britt schooled him at footgolf (who knew that was a thing?), we'd say she ticks all the above boxes.
